A few weeks ago, MGK began filming a video for an unreleased track. Footage and photos surfaced from the set, confirming a previously speculated collab with the blink-182 drummer and YUNGBLUD.

The rapper teamed up with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 to premiere the track, and it wasn’t long before the teasing of the official music video began.

YUNGBLUD took to Facebook to share a snippet of the Machine Gun Kelly video, revealing it would be making its debut on Thursday.

 

Then, we finally got to see it, and apparently so did a lot of other people. As of press time, the MGK video is No. 10 on the trending page for the platform. According to the @chartdata Twitter account, yesterday the video was No. 1 trending video on YouTube in the U.S. 


You can watch the video for yourself below, and we can wait and see how long it takes for it to get another million views.

More on Machine Gun Kelly and “I Think I’m Okay”

Machine Gun Kelly chatted with Lowe ahead of the song’s release, explaining he was “scared to even bring [Barker] the song ’cause [he] was like, ‘Maybe he’s gonna think it’s too blink-182.’”

But he explained Barker loved how they put their own twist on it, which ended up coming together more quickly than they all imagined.

“Fun fact about this song is that YUNGBLUD came into my studio 15 minutes before I needed to go to Travis’ house because we had a session planned,” MGK tells Lowe. “I was like, ‘Dude, I have this crazy song idea. I just need you to do something but I don’t have any time [because] I have to go to Travis’ house [and] I can’t waste his time. You just gotta get in there and do something.’

“He went in there and freestyled his whole verse and just left my house all within 10 minutes. I called him back 30 minutes later, and I’m like, ‘Dude, Travis Barker’s putting drums on the song right now.”
